View Full Version : Plugin Failing Completely

15 Jan 2017, 9:08 AM
Hi All,

The VSCode Sencha Plugin has complete stopped working for me.

Here is my setup:

Mac Version 10.11.6 (El Capitan)
VSCode 1.8.1
Sencha plugin: 1.0.1
Sencha command
ExtJs 6.2.1

Yesterday I created a workspace and app using vscode and the sencha vscode plugin and all of the plugin items like intellisense, Goto Definition, Peek Definition, "sencha app watch" and so forth were working fine for the rest of the day.

The VSCode plugin also handled my recently created ExtJS workspaces and apps just fine. These were created manually with Sencha Command outside of VSCode but the plugin was working fine yesterday.

I came back to work this morning and nothing about the plugin works.

Goto Definition and Peek Definition fail silently.
F1 over an ExtJS class fails with: command 'extensions.vscode-extjs.goToDocs' not found

These related failures also occur:
command 'extension.vscode-extjs.createApp' not found
command 'extension.vscode-extjs.createWorkspace' not found
command 'extension.vscode-extjs.createPackage' not found
command 'extension.vscode-extjs.showLogs' not found

I uninstalled the plugin and removed VSCode by deleting these files/folders

/Applications/Visual Studio Code.app
/private/tmp/VSCode Crashes
~/Library/Application Support/Code
~/Library/Saved Application State/com.microsoft.VSCode.savedState

From this link: http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/225055/app-files-on-mac-os-x-visual-studio-code

After I reinstalled VSCode and reinstalled the plugin, it is still failing as described above.

Please help. I have come to rely on this tool doing what it is supposed to do and am trying to get other people to buy into it.

What course of action can I take to get this setup correctly again?

I've run into a few cases where Visual Studio Code does not properly clean up uninstalled plugins. On Mac OS I've fixed this by deleting the plugin from ~/.vscode/extensions and restarting Visual Studio Code. Once you've done that, try reinstalling the plugin. For what it's worth I've running the exact same setup here and everything is working fine.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for your reply.

I did what you suggested and the failures noted in my original note are still occurring.

In my first note I mentioned that I uninstalled everything related to VSCode, deleted related files, folders, etc. (see my first note for details) and that didn't correct it either.

I'm at a loss and have no idea how to get this corrected.

What else can you suggest?

Is there a log file somewhere that could bring some clarity to this?

The log file is at ~/Library/Application Support/Sencha/VSCode/vscode-extjs.log. Post the contents and I'll have a look. Failing that I'd be happy to get on a hangout with you to further troubleshoot.

Hey Mark,

Thanks for your reply! The log file is empty, strangely enough.

I would love to get on a hangout or a gotomeeting to look at this further.

That must mean that it's not installing at all. I'll PM to set up a time.
